From the first moment I watched Hedy’s TedTalk, I wanted to be as connected, authentic and powerful as she. I got that chance when I attended Hedy’s unforgettable, life changing training. Hedy is a magical storyteller, who nurtures, teaches and encourages us to grow and to develop our own unique style. She affords us the opportunity to engage and connect with ourselves, as well as others on and off the stage.

Watch Hedy's TED Talk

On Monday, April 26, 2010 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Hedy Schleifer was invited to be one of the influential 20 minute lecturers at the TEDxTelAviv Conference. If you have trouble viewing this video here, you can go directly to https://www.youtube.com/hedyyumi.


Hedy teaches at a level that I have ever never experienced before or since. She doesn’t just share interesting information; she transmits information in a way that lands in you so deeply that it enters your whole being, not just your brain. That information sticks even years later. She teaches the art of being truly present to the people or person in the room with whom she is in communication.
- Nancy Hyatt, LCSW-C
